I Saw the Cyan

Etsy Treasury: Aqua Cyan Turquoise

Aqua Cyan Turquoise

Whatever you call it, pale blue is a calm, happy color.  It’s the color of clear skies and tropical beaches.  It’s a wedding color, and goes so well with other shades like black, brown and deep red.

Where does pale blue take you?

The Blue That Connects Us

40000 Knitted Squares for WaterAid

Water is a part of everything, from the air and plants, to all of the creatures that share this Earth. Including humans. Although water belongs to no one, it is treated either like gold, or like trash, depending on the agenda of the moment.

Water is everywhere, yet 4000 children die each day due to illnesses from lack of clean drinking water. Organizations like WaterAid attempt to prevent this tragedy with small, essential efforts like creating wells for communities to use.

We are lucky to be ignorant of the burden of thirst.

Can you imagine going even one day without clean water?

Goodbye Gorgeous Greens!

Fresh Green Etsy Treasury

Fresh Green

Actually, here on the West Coast, winter is when we have the most greens. Still…

No matter what color your winter and fall season will be, it’s almost time to say goodbye to leaves and caterpillars and other green things.  Even if you love the oranges of autumn, I think everyone misses the fresh, dew-drop glittery potential of green summer mornings, once the frost begins to appear.

Which green will you miss the most?

Bring on the Orange

Rejoice autumn lovers! September is finally here.

Even though summer vacation isn’t over yet, and fall doesn’t technically begin for another three weeks, it’s time to think orange! Leaves, pumpkins, fuzzy sweaters and scarves, steaming chai and so many more delights await in the cool crispness of fall.

What do you look forward to the most, come autumn?
